I am a 2018 graduate veterinarian from Murdoch University, Western Australia
I have been actively engaging in pet-sitting for over 4 years in Perth on top of my veterinary education at University so I am proficient with all aspects of pet-sitting and dog walking. I have handled over many dogs of various sizes with different temperaments, looked after cats, watched over ducks and cared for ferrets. I also have extensive experience taking care of both senior pets and very young baby animals. I do have a vehicle available for emergencies or simply taking dogs to the park or their favourite walking places. My goal is to walk dogs for at least 30 minutes to provide sufficient aerobic exercise or I can go for shorter/longer trips depending on their needs. I always take photos of pets under my care and sharing them with their pawrents so that the owners are reassured their furkids are safe, happy and well-looked during their trips .
I offer overnight pet-sitting at the pet's home or house-visits at least twice a day. I also do dog walking and puppy-minding.
Additionally, I have also lots of experience working with and handling dogs as a kennel-helper in Perth for more than 3 years. On top of that, I am also a certified and trained Veterinary Technician/Veterinary Nurse in Singapore.
Having a veterinary background, I am confident in giving medications, feeding special diets, providing first-aid and caring for pets with existing medical conditions or special needs.
I always perform every task to my best ability while showing compassion, gentleness, professionalism and lots of cuddles!
I am also very passionate about animal welfare and I always put in my best effort with animal care....

Excellent care. Our fur babies were happy and healthy and am sure they enjoyed the company of Marcus…
Pet Sitting - Jul 15, 2018
Marcus is a great sitter! He kept me informed about my dogs throughout my trip, replied to my messages promptly and sent me lots of photos of their activities. This gave me a peace of mind that they are well looked after. Will definitely use Marcus again in the future!…
Marcus was everything we could have hoped for in a sitter. Regular photo updates, health checks on the pets, and a lovely meet and greet before the visit. Our two large dogs and two cats are happy and healthy on return. Thanks so much Marcus! …
